I picked this B&B as I wanted somewhere a bit cozier and less formal to stay in Dublin - where I travel regularly and stay occasionally. I wanted something good value, too. An initially quoted 99 euro was quickly negotiated down on the basis of lesser online quotations, to a more reasonable 69 euro. It was generally comfortable and pleasant to stay in and is well located not too far from the city centre - not bang on central but accessible. It was bright clean and airy and quiet and relaxing as one would hope for a B&B. The bedroom was a bit smaller than expected but the bed was comfortable. One of the taps in the bathroom went the opposite way to usual for on and off - a wee bit disconcerting. An early morning call at 5am (presumably ordered by a previous guest) was most unwelcome. I only met one, albeit very pleasant and helpful, staff member who checked me in at night, served me breakfast and then checked me out. Breakfast is officially only served from 8am - which was a bit late for me as I'd travelled up to Dublin to be able to make an 8am meeting. However, the solitary staff member served me a continental breakfast at 7.30. The dining room seemed surprisingly large and looked out on a garden that at another time of year (i.e. not October) might be quite pleasant. I was looking for a pied a terre that I might use in Dublin again and again but I'm not sure this is quite it.
